What is Margin trading?
Cryptocurrency margin trading is the process of buying and selling digital coins using leveraged funds from an exchange. This trade allows traders to increase their potential profits and manage their risks, but it can also increase the level of risk, as borrowed funds must be returned, even if in the event of a losing trade.
